Chamois Technology

In 1983, we made the first synthetic chamois and forever changed cycling apparel. Since then, we’ve been on a mission to continue innovating where it matters most. Our top-end chamois technology sets a new bar for performance-minded
riders, and we apply the same thinking and quality standards to all price points because everyone should ride in comfort. 

Levitate™ Series

The Levitate™ family represents our latest innovation in chamois technology. By combining a multi-density Suspension Core™, super-soft 1:1® Boundary Layer top sheet, and seamless Infinite Edge™ transition, the Levitate lets you float through road and trail chatter so you’ll never bottom out. 

Levitate PRO

The pinnacle of comfort and performance, this chamois pad offers more support with better stretch and breathability than any on the market. The PRO Next-Gen Suspension Core® uses ultra-high-density layers to distribute your body weight over a larger area for more comfort, even deep into a ride when most chamois are packed out. It features our softest, highest stretch 1:1 Boundary Layer that moves with you in and out of the saddle to minimize friction. Whether you’re riding for one hour or twelve, nothing rides better.

Levitate PLUS

With a ride quality similar to the PRO, this chamois pad delivers comfort and performance that’s on par or better than most high-end offerings. The PLUS Next-Gen Suspension Core uses high-density layers to distribute your body weight over a larger area for more comfort, even deep into a ride when most chamois are packed out. It features a moisture-wicking 1:1 Boundary Layer that moves with you in and out of the saddle to minimize friction. This is a daily driver chamois that is ready to go the distance.

Levitate

Based on the same design philosophy as the more premium PRO and PLUS, this chamois pad delivers incredible performance at a more accessible price point. The key difference is that it’s cut from a single layer of medium-density material, with a thicker cross-section providing comfortable support to the most high-pressure areas. An integrated boundary layer keeps soft, fast-drying fabric next to the skin to minimize friction. This chamois punches above its weight, delivering a ride on par with most mid-range offerings.

We Design With Three Goals in Mind:

REDUCE FRICTION

Cycling is repetitive, so we use high stretch materials, soft face fabrics, and an innovative floating top layer to smooth the movement between your body and the saddle.

PROVIDE SUPPORT

While riding, a considerable amount of weight is concentrated on the sit bones, which are about the size of a quarter. Our suspension core design distributes this pressure evenly across a wider area to prevent hot spots and improve long-distance comfort.

KEEP SKIN DRY

We choose specialized, highly breathable layers to allow moisture to move freely away from your body, maintaining skin health and a chafe-free riding experience.
